Student Hours

Welcome to our Student Hours Volunteer page!

If you are in high school are need to complete service hours for school or another organization, please read below to discover ways that you can help the dogs and cats in our care!  We are not currently having groups visit the shelter for volunteer opportunities, so please keep reading to learn about some options to complete hours!

At this time, we are inviting students who need to complete hours to get involved in very specific ways.  Please read through some of the ideas listed below and then submit a Student Interest Form to let us know what you think you would like to do!

  1.  You can host a donation drive at school, your neighborhood, your place of worship, wherever will allow you to set up information and collect items for the dogs and cats in our care!  View our Wish List HERE!
  2. Raise money to donate to Five Acres- come up with creative ways to fund raise, whether it be a bake sale, a mini garage sale, ask your principal or teacher if your grade/school can dress down for a day and students pay $.50 as a donation to Five Acres, etc.!
  3. Ask family and friends to donate items to Five Acres for your birthday instead of giving you a gift!  After all, the best gifts in life are the ones we give to others, and if those gifts help dogs and cats, then even better!  Our Wish List is on our website on the Donate page, or you can send out our Amazon Wish List!
  4. Host a virtual Trivia Night (we have a company that we work with you to host it)… there is a small subscription fee and you can invite up to 100 people and we can host registration on our site and we can manage teams for the event; or you can do it on your own- you make your questions and host it on your own!

If you would like to put together one of the fundraising opportunities above, please complete the form below!!  If you have an idea other than those suggested above, please describe what you have in mind!  Please know that at this time, we are not able to have students come to our property (individually or as a group) to work with our dogs and cats in our care.  Thank you!
